MAYBE SID HAD A SPY

Beats me how Sid Blumenthal is so certain Karl Rove masterminded Rathergate; after all, Sid wasn’t invited to any of the meetings.

    1. One of Tim’s greatest hits.

      Proceed…. Laughed my ass off.

    1. Hey, whatever happened to the Holy Bat of Righteous Malice?  It’s been missing for a while.

    1. Roger Simon said it best…..Sid is stuck back in the 1980s.

      Or maybe 1967.  Sometimes, I wonder if there was ever a difference between the two.

    1. Well, now that the Dark Lord has [ahem] retired (cough, *smirk*), perhaps Sidney should avoid walking down dark alleys from now on.

    1. I have to wonder why Sid’s first assumption is a dark plot. Is this something he’s used to seeing happen? I watched it unfold in real-time, and I know it was just a group of people with common interests and specialized knowledge sharing opinions and facts to reach the conclusion.

      But it seems like the left (including Sid) retreats to the conspiracy theory. Projection? An inability to believe that the average Joe is capable of independent thought?

    1. Sid is just reliving his Clinton years, a time when the manipulation of documents was rife.  Hell, they even managed to diddle with document evidence AFTER they left office.

    1. #6: I agree with Salty. Working for the American Borgias probably led Sid to believe that everybody plays the same game.

    1. Paco,
      That’s a cruel thing to say, comparing the Clintons to the Borgias.  It demeans the Borgias.  They had style and panache.  The Clintons are merely hayseeds.  Vicious, greedy, paranoid hayseeds it’s true, but still hayseeds.Rebecca,
      Our Dark Lord would neve ambush a political enemy in a dark alley.  That’s what he has specially trained minions for.

    1. #8 Professor Lonie: My apologies to Borgias everywhere. Perhaps I should have said the modern Ma Barker and her gang.

    1. paco, now you’re insulting Ma Barker.  She was a lot better looking than Hillary.  Ma Barker

      And Sid Vicious is undoubtedly projecting.  He’s mostly just jealous.

    1. Does it matter if Rather fell for a sinister plot? It doesn’t alter the fact that Rather based his whole story on documents that were easily exposed as forgeries.

    1. after all, Sid wasn’t invited to any of the meetings.

      Neither was I.  I’m still steamed about it too.  I go through all the trouble of getting the coffee (and everyone had to have a different type) and doughnuts, and then the meeting has to be “top secret” while I only had “secret” clearance.  Yeesh.

  1. #12 C’mon RBJ1, black with nothing else isn’t that tough, is it?
